    I think one of you are talking about high school class and the other talking about draft class (creating the 1 year difference in what you are saying).

    I listened to the new Rockets' podcast with Friedman and Craig Ackerman. Friendman's dream is to not trade for Dwight, build through the draft with his ultimate wet dream being to get Wiggins. I agree.

    Jonathan Giovny of Draftexpess said right now if he were make a profile for Andrew Wiggins on DX.com, his best case would be LeBron James, and his worse case would be Nicolas Batum meets Rudy Gay.

    Worst Case Scenario = Wes Johnson.

    He won't be as good as Lebron or Durant.

    Wes Johnson's knock was his athleticism. This kid won't ever have that knock against him unless he tears both ACL's multiple times in the next 2 years.

    Every year it seems like the big headline for the high school's top prospect is "Best Prospect since Lebron James!"

    Well....frankly, I see it in Andrew Wiggins. I didn't see it in Shabazz, Jabari Parker, Harrison Barnes, MKG, etc., but Andrew Wiggins just has the rarest form of athleticism, refinement, shooting, ball handling, etc. that I think we've seen since Lebron.

    I'm usually not pro-tanking, but this dude might be worth it in my opinion.

    Dwight Howard won't be a free agent when this guy is in the draft.

    We need to stock up lottery picks and trade for # 1 and draft this guy. Right now that's my biggest fantasy, it just went ahead of the two girls one.

    This kid really reminds me of Lebron In high school. His body, game the whoe nine.... Like a previous poster said hes the best prospect Iv seen in highschool since Lebron. I'm never a fan of trying to be the worst team in basketball but for him I would absolutely suck for a year.

    I would freak if we could somehow land Andrew Wiggins, as unlikely as that may be. The history his father had with the Rockets is just icing on the cake.
